Sunday night's Academy Award ceremony saw some Baby Boomers take home the Oscar statue in some of the major categories. In a previous article, there were five categories mentioned: Best Actor and Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actor and Best Actress in a Supporting Role, and Best Director. The only category that did not have a Baby Boomer in the running was Best Actress in a Lead Role.
So how did the results play out in remaining four? Well, three of the four had a Baby Boomer win:
Best Actor in a Leading Role went to Daniel Day Lewis for his portrayal of the great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln in the movie "Lincoln." Lewis' win was his third as Best Leading Actor making him the person who has won this category the most times in Oscar history.
Best Actor in a Supporting Role went to Christopher Waltz for "Django Unchained."
Best Director was awarded to Ang Lee for his direction of the movie "The Life of Pi."
Of note was the win of Anne Hathaway for Best Supporting Actress for "Les Miserables" who was only one of two not a boomer in that category.
All in all, a pretty good night for baby boomers in the movie industry.
